Jeremiah Lee Wright, 31, is accused of beheading his son last year. However, a judge has ruled on Tuesday that this father is unable to stand trial.
“Judge John E. LeBlanc's decision came after a six-day hearing that ended Feb. 4” according to the Huffington Post.
Apparently, a dozen detectives and experts confirmed that Wright described his son, Jori Lirette, 7, as an experimental “robot or CPR dummy” that the government placed in his home “to teach him about life.”
That is why LeBlanc ruled that Wright is mentally unfit to assist his lawyer in winning this case. The judge stated that Wright would not be able to consistently sit through a trial and “listen to witnesses and inform his lawyers of distortions or misstatements…”
Instead LeBlanc placed Wright in the custody of the state Department of Health and Hospitals and the Eastern Louisiana Mental Health Systems, Forensic Division, at Jackson, La., for treatment, said the Huffington Post.
Readers, do you think this father was in his right mind when he killed his son on Aug. 14, 2011, chopped off his head, and left it in the yard?
